Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ethiopian Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Demeke Mekonnen attend a news conference following their talks in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, July 27, 2022. Lavrov was in Addis Ababa wrapping up a four-nation African tour aimed at drumming up support for Moscow at a time of confrontation with Western powers over the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Most African nations, mindful of economic interests and historical ties with both Russia and the West, have declined to take sides over Ukraine. The Ethiopian government has accused its foreign critics of seeking to unduly interfere in its internal affairs. Questions were asked by diplomats from South Sudan, Algeria and Pakistan before Lavrov left.

Ethiopia is currently undergoing a humanitarian crisis with violence largely fueled by hate speech on Facebook. The company has promised to deploy sophisticated algorithms to stem the flow of hate speech in the country. Researchers say these investments aren't working and are even missing hate speech that has previously been taken down by the platform. As reported at the time, this violence was "supercharged by the almost-instant and widespread sharing of hate speech and incitement to violence on Facebook". All 12 advertisements that contained hate speech were approved.

EUGENE, Ore., July 23 (Reuters) - Ethiopian Gudaf Tsegay held off late challengers to win the women's 5,000 metres at the World Championships on Saturday as world record-holder Letesenbet Gidey faded down the straight to miss the podium. Tokyo bronze medallist Tsegay traded the lead with compatriot Gidey, the world 10,000m champion, throughout the race until the pack took off for the final lap. "I was trying to control the race coming from the first place during the run so it was very hard for me ... Kenyan Beatrice Chebet moved up in the final 200m for silver and Ethiopian Dawit Seyaum finished with bronze. After the race a fan ran onto Hayward Field holding what appeared to be a Tigray flag and picked up both Tsegay and Gidey before being removed by security.

Somalia's al Shabaab group in rare attack near Ethiopia border
  + stars: | 2022-07-21 | by ( ) www.reuters.com   time to read: +2 min
Attacks by al Shabaab in areas near Ethiopia's border Ethiopia are rare because of a robust Ethiopian security presence in the region and inside Somalia, where they are also part of an African peacekeeping force. He said the regional Ethiopian police seized heavy machine guns and vehicles from al Shabaab fighters. He said he had seen the dozens of al Shabaab dead. Casualty figures given by al Shabaab and the authorities in Somalia or elsewhere are often significantly different. Al Shabaab frequently carries out bombings in Somalia to topple the government and rule based on its strict interpretation of Islam's sharia law.

American soprano Angel Blue said she will not be performing in an upcoming opera in Italy following a controversy over the use of blackface. "I was so looking forward to making my house debut at Arena di Verona singing one of my favorite operas, but I cannot in good conscience associate myself with an institution which continues this practice," Blue added. That staging uses blackface. This is not the first time the use of blackface makeup for a staging of “Aida” in the same theater has sparked outcry from a soprano. In 2019, opera singer Tamara Wilson, who is white, protested against darkening her face to sing the title character of an Ethiopian woman in the opera at the Arena.

KIGALI, Rwanda — For decades, the village had been a sanctuary for the families, who tilled the land and cared for their herds in Ethiopia’s largest region. But on Monday, two days after gunmen set upon the ethnic Amhara residents of Tole village in the Oromia region of Ethiopia — killing perhaps hundreds, injuring many others and laying waste to property — any sense of sanctuary had vanished. “We are not safe,” said Fikadu, a resident of the village who only gave his first name over fears for his safety.

(CNN) At least 200 civilians are believed to have been killed in Ethiopia's Oromia region by rebel group the Oromo Liberation Army (OLA) on Saturday, according to reports, a rights group and local officials. Most of the victims are from the Amhara ethnic group, a police officer said. The EHRC told CNN Monday that the assault has left "scores of people injured, villages destroyed, and entire communities traumatized." The OLA -- which last year aligned with Tigrayan rebel forces against Ethiopia's federal government in the country's protracted conflict -- has denied all the allegations. The rebel group has been designated as a terror organization by the Ethiopian government, and it is frequently accused of attacking civilians and targeting ethnic Amharas.

NAIROBI, Kenya — Witnesses in Ethiopia said Sunday that more than 200 people, mostly ethnic Amhara, have been killed in an attack in the country’s Oromia region and are blaming a rebel group, which denies it.

Our fighters had not even reached that area when the attacks took place.”Ethiopia is experiencing widespread ethnic tensions in several regions, most of them over historical grievances and political tensions. The Amhara people, the second-largest ethnic group among Ethiopia’s more than 110 million population, have been targeted frequently in regions like Oromia.

KIGALI, Rwanda — An Ethiopian rebel group massacred more than 200 members of the Amhara ethnic group on Sunday, according to officials and news reports, the latest atrocity amid a civil war that threatens to tear apart Africa’s second-most-populous nation. Witnesses and officials told The Associated Press that at least 230 people were killed when members of the Oromo Liberation Army attacked Tole, a village in Oromia, Ethiopia’s largest region. The Oromo Liberation Army, a rebel group known as the O.L.A. that is designated as a terror organization by the Ethiopian government, denied carrying out the killings and said they were committed by a militia aligned with the regional government supporting Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.

Nairobi (CNN) The Ethiopian government has formed a committee to negotiate with forces from the Tigray region, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said in a televised speech to parliament on Tuesday. The committee has been "studying the preconditions and how the negotiations will go," he said.

Brigadier General Tefera Mamo commanded the Amhara region's forces until February when he was removed without explanation. Amhara forces backed Abiy's federal troops against rebellious forces in northern Tigray when conflict erupted there in 2020. Fano had been helping federal and Amhara soldiers in the Tigray war, and in his TV interview, Tefera had said the movement should not be sidelined. Nine members of the National Movement of Amhara (NAMA), an opposition party, were also arrested in two towns on May 18, said the Amhara Association of America. "Those who took them were wearing a uniform of Amhara special forces, Amhara police and anti-riot forces.

MOGADISHU, Somalia — On the way to and from his dental clinic every day, Dr. Abdulkadir Abdirahman Adan was appalled by an all-too-common sight: severely injured and dead Somalis being transported to hospitals in wooden hand carts or wheelbarrows. Dr. Adan, who had just returned to the city from studying abroad and had opened his dental practice in the city’s largest open air market, felt powerless to end the bloodshed. But he thought he could do something to help still-living victims get treatment faster and make sure the dead were handled with dignity. “I asked myself, ‘How can I help my people?’” Dr. Adan said recently in an interview at his office. People would call Dr. Adan or the bus owners on their cellphones to direct them to those in need of aid.

Ethiopian government spokesman Legesse Tulu said government officials had received multiple reports of forced recruitment. It accelerated in January and intensified with mass arrests last month, added six Tigray residents, who all said they had friends or family members detained in an aggressive push to make people enlist. Tigrayan forces, who threatened to march to the capital Addis Ababa in November, have largely withdrawn to their own region. However, the accounts of forced recruitment suggest the TPLF may be preparing for a possible resurgence in combat. Another resident, who also requested anonymity for fear of retribution, said enthusiasm to join Tigrayan forces had waned after they pushed into neighbouring Amhara and Afar regions but were beaten back in bloody battles.

The Covid-19 pandemic was likely caused by the transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus from the southeast Asian horseshoe bat to humans. The additional 4,000 cross species viral transmissions between mammals does not mean there will be another 4,000 potential Covid-19 pandemics, Greg Albery, a postdoctoral Fellow at Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin in Berlin and a co-author of the study, told CNBC. "But each one has the potential to influence animal health and maybe to then spill over into human populations," Albery told CNBC. It could cost a billion dollars to properly identify and counteract the spread of zoonotic viruses the report finds, and that research will be critical to preventing pandemics. "Big picture, preparedness is the key and we need to invest in research, early detection, and surveillance systems," Aliota told CNBC.

Picture taken February 25, 2022.REUTERS/Tiksa Negeri/File PhotoNAIROBI, April 28 (Reuters) - The Ethiopian government said on Thursday that rebellious Tigrayan forces are still in the neighbouring region of Afar, despite a spokesman for the Tigrayan forces announcing their withdrawal days earlier. Government spokesperson Legesse Tulu told state media that the news that Tigrayan forces had left Afar were "big lies." The Tigrayan forces said they were withdrawing so humanitarian convoys could enter. Tigrayan forces have been fighting the central government since November 2020, when conflict erupted between the two sides. Tigrayan forces agreed to respect the ceasefire on the condition that sufficient aid was delivered to their region "within reasonable time".
